Nature is cruel but we don’t have to be. We owe them respect

How amazing is this movie

Temple Grandin

I cried and cried

I touched the first cow that was being stunned. In a few seconds it was going to be just another piece of beef, but in that moment it was still an individual. It was calm… and then it was gone.

Of course they’re gonna get slaughtered. You think we’d have cattle if people didn’t eat ’em everyday? They’d just be funny-lookin’ animals in zoos. But we raise them for us. That means we owe them some respect. Nature is cruel, but we don’t have to be. I would’nt want to have my guts ripped out by a lion, I’d much rather die in a slaughterhouse if it was done right. Temple Grandin

Wow. Now to find the tissues

and a special salute to our very own trail blazer Catherine Marriott on Channel 10



I became aware of how precious life was. I thought about death and I felt close to God. I don’t want my thoughts to die with me. I want to have done something. Temple Grandin

Finally one for everyone who has ever sat in the passenger side of the farm vehicle and wished Temple Grandin worked on their farm ( those who have seen the movie will know what I mean)
